The Juvenile Justice Clinic taught me the crucial importance of patience and persistence as an advocate.  While at times it was frustrating to work with clients as they continued to make mistakes, it was worth the effort when I won a child the right to remain at home with his family and in his community.  Learning to persevere as an advocate, when even my client wasn’t convinced the court would find in his or her favor, affirmed my confidence in the court’s ability to make just decisions for the people it serves.
